If you haven´t done so yet, go and watch Gilda - Rita Hayworth steals the show, is totally mesmerizing and proves that she really was one of the most beautiful women of all times.
But beware - it´s that kind of movie that´s going to force you to wear silky stockings, throw away your ripped denim shorts, crave satin robes and the time when men were gentlemen and women ladies (or at least they looked like that:))

"After all, a girl is... well, a girl. It`s nice to be told you`re successful at it. "
Rita Hayworth

Interview by Imogen Fox
Monday February 4, 2008
The Guardian

Q: Who do you style?
A: I have my own magazine called Lula and I style Keira Knightley, among others.

Q: What are you wearing today?

A: Topshop dress I bought before Christmas when I went back to Canada, where I'm from. A Phillip Lim jacket that I ordered from the show last season and shoes by Maloles, which were a gift from the label. Tilda's collar is from Mulberry. It's the first day she has worn it.
Did you subconsciously tone your outfit with Tilda?
No. I was planning to wear a Rodarte dress today, but I had a weird morning and thought I would wear something that was more like a uniform. The easiest thing to wear is a dress and a jacket, and I always have a pair of Chanel flats on me. It's partly because I have a dog and so I can go to the park and play. You can't in heels, no matter how high or low they are.

Q: Does Tilda wear dog clothes?

A: She has a grandfather-green cardigan to keep her warm in the winter.

Q: Describe your style.

A: Lolita is the wrong word, but I guess it's quite playful and eclectic. If I want to buy something, it's usually for some sort of nostalgic reason - because it reminds me of Alice in Wonderland or Little Orphan Annie. I think we are most true to our tastes when we are young and before anyone has told us what we should like.

Q: Has your style never changed then?

Q: Probably not. I think I dressed the best at high school - I'm 28 now. I was experimenting with things for the first time. Now I know that certain clothes mean certain things. In high school, I wore old men's sock gaiters with thigh-high socks. It didn't cross my mind that it was sexual.I just thought it was cool. Now I wouldn't do it.

Q: Is your fringe your trademark?

A: I guess so. I've had it since I was 15. I'm not a very upkeep girl, so I have to be reminded that it's time to cut it.

Q: So are you quite low maintenance?

A: With beauty things, yes. I don't wear makeup very often - I like my freckles.

Q: Do you swap clothes with friends and clients?

A: Only a select few - people I have sleepovers with.

Q: What is the most expensive thing you have ever bought?

A: I try not to dwell on the price because otherwise you convince yourself not to buy something. When I was 15, I didn't buy a pair of Miu Miu shoes because they were expensive. They still haunt me now. I once bought three pairs of Chloé shoes in two weeks because they had appointed a new designer and I was nervous.

Q: Do you dress differently when you are in Canada?

A: No, but I wear jeans and that makes me feel lazy so I don't do it that often. It makes my boyfriend happy when I wear jeans, T-shirt and no makeup. I subconsciously try not to do that!

Q: Whose style do you admire?

A: Marianne Faithfull in the 1960s, and I like the dresses that the Vivian girls wear in Henry Darger's paintings.

Q: How do you decide what to wear in the morning?

A: I think it should be instinctual and not thought through. If I haven't hung things up, those things don't exist. That means I have less to work with, but sometimes when you give yourself limitations you end up making more fun choices.

Q: On what occasion do you think you looked best?

A: Probably on Sundays when I'm not thinking at all. I'll go out for brunch and ask my boyfriend if I look a little nuts and he'll say, "Yes, but it's cute." I pair things that I don't really think look nice together, but then it's Sunday so I don't care and then I end up getting ideas from the nutsness.
